About Guerrilla Queer Bar | Burlington
Guerrilla Queer Bar (sometimes known as Guerrilla Gay Bar) is a model used in cities around the country and world where the LGBTQ+ community intentionally gathers in a bar or club that might otherwise be assumed to be a “straight” or hetero-centric/cis-centric venue. It’s an opportunity to gather, connect, drink, dance, meet Mx./Ms./Mr. Right?, and most importantly, have fun in a large group of inclusive and affirming queer and trans spectrum people (LGBTQ+ ACE + GNC). For some people, this also feels like the safest way to go out and be queer.
This group embraces the vision that together, united, we are stronger, happier, healthier, and safer. Too often, LGBTQ+ parties and events self-divide based on gender/sex and age; this group is emphatically committed to fostering an inclusive space where LGBTQ+ people of all ages (21+ for most venues, 18+ for some venues), genders and sexual identities are coming together to have fun and our queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) community members feel safe, affirmed, and respected.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each Month a date will be set for Guerrilla Queer Bar Burlington in advance and announced on this Facebook page and Instagram. If all goes well, you will hopefully hear about the events simply through your own social circles as well but be sure to follow us or sign up for alerts so you don’t miss out! The location will be announced by noon the day of in order to preserve the “guerrilla” element of the model.
